Frequently Mispronounced Words in the Hobby

Owner

This may be too off-topic, but it was just a thought I had and wanted to see what are some others out there for... educational purposes :D

I'll kick us off:

  • CMON - should be "kuh-mann"?
  • Uwe - for the longest time I thought it's similar to "you" because all of the content creators I've been listening to said it that way haha

Many people pronounce #Star Wars: Rebellion wrong. You need to say it like “Greatest game of all time”. It’s a subtle thing.

I thought this was really funny but apparently no one else did.

I pronounce CMON "See-mon" but am fairly sure it should be "come on" Agricola is almost an italian word so should be pronounced "a-GRICK-olla" Uwe should be pronounced "oo-vay"

Mispronounced words :

Almost any French designer, publisher, or game title. 

I don't know how often I have heard Agri-cola, as if it is some sort of soda. It should be a-gric-ola.

I had been pronouncing #Viscounts of the West Kingdom as vis-counts instead of vi-counts until watching a video.

That was a new one for me as well.

I say CMON like someone's trying to hurry me along, "C'mon!".  (Come on!) Most everyone else in my game group says "Sea-Mon," like some aquatic-form digimon haha

Uwe...I am not sure how to pronounce his name haha I say "Ew-way," but I'm pretty sure that's wrong haha I content myself to call him Mr. Rosenberg.

For Uwe I hear people on youtube pronounce it like "oo-vay", which makes sense, given that he's German.

Yes, that does make more sense. And, according to the source I just listened to, OO-veh is the proper way haha

Supporter10 months ago

Yes, that is right.
